Strawberry Blueberry Oatmeal Bake.

Oldie but goodie. 

I made this recipe a few weeks back (my birthday week to be exact) but I thought I would post it because its so darn good. The extra special thing about this post is its the first time I have used this awesome new Minnesota shaped cutting board! Andrea gave it to me for my birthday and it is just the perfect size for appetizers, cheese plates, and these cool photos. Most days we have overnight oats for breakfast but lately I have been making different oatmeal bakes for busier weeks. Love oatmeal? Love breakfast? Then you would love this. 

A little update on the home front- I am still studying all the time and the test day is getting closer and closer. I really can't wait until its over. This next weekend we are heading to Chicago for my brother's wedding. We fly out on Friday (no work- woot woot!) and are visiting Kathleen for the evening. I am so excited to get away because I honestly can't remember the last time we went somewhere on "vacation". Hopefully I will remember to take lots of photos to share. In the meantime, eat some oatmeal.
